The head of the league organization EFL believes that it is “outrageous” that Manchester United and Liverpool are portrayed as “evil” because they want to change English football.
Rick Parry expresses this in an interview with Jamie Carragher – reproduced by among others.
EFL is the organization for levels two, three and four in English football.
It was three weeks ago to be able to reveal a proposal for major changes in the Premier League.
While the Premier League has expressed opposition to the plan, the EFL – that is, Parry – has supported the plan.
According to the newspaper, it was the Liverpool owners Fenway Group – with support from Manchester United – who wrote the working document called “Project Big Picture”.
The plan is, among other things, to cut the number of teams in the Premier League from 20 to 18, only the two bottom teams will move down directly and there will be increased power for the biggest clubs.
However, EFL boss Parry believes that the plan will be able to reduce the “insurmountable” gap between the Premier League and the other three divisions.
The plan also includes a rescue plan for the clubs in the Championship, League One and League Two. When asked directly if he really thinks the owners of Manchester United and Liverpool care about these three leagues, Parry answers:
– I absolutely think they care. I know it’s real, because I’ve talked to them for a long time, otherwise I would not have gone on with this.
